been telling you for years that the president's health care law needs to be repealed and replaced. now a majority of americans agree with us according to a newly released gallup poll. 52% say they favor repealing or scaling back obama care. only 37% said it should be kept the way it is or expanded. that's not only the troubling news we have to share on a conference call with reporters today a cms spokesman said on health care.gov one of every ten transactions is experiencing errors. also according to politico things would be worse. that's worse for the administration. a new report reads enrollment surge or no the next challenge is a big one. how will the white house make sure all the people with cancelled policies get new coverage by january 1. even with the speedier newly functioning website they have a vast distance to travel before the estimated 4 to 5 million people with cancelled policies get new health care coverage. it is not out of the question that the obama administration could pace the worst case scenario on january 1 -- the number of uninsured american goes up. pathetic. we

go back to 2009 when the obamacare law was passed, all the republicans in the end voted against that bill but we voted for our alternative. in fact, the alternative that we had was even enjoyed a congressional budget office score which said that our plan would actually lower the cost of premiums unlike obamacare. >> why is the president saying that? he said yesterday in his speech. he says you have no ideas. you have no alternatives. why is he saying that to you? >> i think it's more of the same that we have seen from this president and the white house. just my way or othe highway. and the public should just accept it that's really been the attitude this white house has been about and we see people hurting now. and those of us in the republican conference in the house really want to help people with their healthcare. and, unfortunately, we know that obamacare is just not ever going to get there the web site is just the beginning because, underneath it all, is a flawed law that really is not going to give people the kind of healthcare that they want at the prices that theyn a. >>
that president obama back when he was a law school student had stayed with him in cambridge, i thought it was the right thing to do to go ask him. nobody had asked him in the past, and the president said he in fact had met omar obama when he moved to cambridge for law school, and he stayed with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. >> so that's what jay carney says. the only real difference here was that he, jay carney, physically asked the president face-to-face, whether he met with the uncle, and that was the difference. the president said, yes, i met with him and stayed with him for three weeks. i spoke with the attorney for the uncle. the uncle's name is an youngo obama. but the uncle threw a congratulatory party for barack obama when he graduated from harvard law school. that's where they're trying to iron out some of the contradictions. >> the uncle came as a student to the united states. was about to be deported, but what, for 50 years, there was this case going on, and only in the last few days has he been told he can stay in the united states legally. >
of the media. there's no law that's going to stop people from going into town and violating this request. that's where it gets difficult. from cnn's perspective, there are many, many ways to cover this story without being there. while acknowledging the requests from the town. you can have retrospectives, look at the individuals of the victims, you can revisit some of the unknown elements of the crime itself. so i think that cnn is doing the right thing. other news organizations are as well. and this is going to come up again and again, unfortunately, because the fascination, horror of the story, will not diminish. >> hearing from those parents, i'm conflicted. i really actually admire the strength they showed today to come out, because they know that there is this need, this demand. america wants to mourn with them. so here we have them giving this full statement and saying essentially, listen, we're talking now. but come saturday, we want complete and utter privacy. is that how you see it? >> it is. and you know, they're not saying we don't ever think the media should be here and we're never
think what will happen when you get to year end, a lot of muni funds will be pressured more, tax law selling -- >> lots. >> you'll do okay buying these funds at a discount. >> we won't necessarily see that pressure from the broader market, certainly. people maybe the last couple of years, any harvest, time is running out. >> there's still lots of things to harvest this year. lots of munis you can swap out of. munis are out. those are good places to swap into a different fund if you need to. take the loss, put it in your pocket if you don't need it and carry it forward. tax law accounting is huge in investing. >> we've been out of the muni market for the past 14 to 15 months when munis started getting back over 5% we've been a buyer. we've been aggressively buying municipal bonds. >> rob morgan any opinion on that before we go, quickly? >> absolutely. i think having a portfolio for individual investor tilted more toward short end and rising rate environment makes sense. i think detroit bankruptcy spells trouble more for retirees on pension plans more for than m
a statement yet? >> so initially, the train operator told law enforcement officials he applied pressure to the brake but the train did not stop. there was an engineer on board and there were three conductors. investigators hope to be able to speak with the crew in the coming days. they'll want to sit is the down and interview them when they're ready to do that. for now, we have not heard whether or not the interviews have been conducted. we know investigators have found two event recorders, one in the back of the train, the other in the front of the train. the data from those recorders is being downloaded. it should give investigators a very clear picture of what the train's speed, what its velocity was and how the brake system might have been functioning. >> alexandra field, thanks so much, reporting from the bronx. >>> all right. let's take you to london now as the trial resumed today for two men an us coos of first of all slamming their car into a british soldier and then getting out and hacking him to death. >> jurors today saw this video of one of the defendants. we're blurring the
've issued an alert to all the law enforcement agencies along the border. and the homeland security department itself has these sensors deployed with border agents which they can use to wand any type of truck that comes through a border crossing to try to detect whether any of this material is coming through. now, as rafael has mentioned, it is a very big concern obviously for many years now, the homeland security department has worried someone could try to pass something like this across the border to try to detonate some kind of bomb. as rafael has also mentioned, it's a very difficult thing to do. this thing is encased in lead. it is very difficult to extract. there are these little chunks of cobalt 6 on a now if one were to handle it, to even hold it for a few minutes, it is a very dangerous thing and could cause permanent damage, but it is not something that is easily done. at this point, i think they're trying to help the mexican government figure out whether this was just taken by somebody who was targeting some of the scrap material that was on the truck that was taken, fred
in the decision we make and make sure we make the right decision. i have been in law enforcement nearly 50 years. and my prosecution experience has taught me that we need to handle each case equally and fairly. and it's a search for the truth. we did so in this case. our city has two universities, major universities here. and we have dealt with athletes on prior occasions, and made decisions at some time to prosecutor them if the facts merited it. we have carefully examines all of the evidence in this case and have concluded that no charges will be filed against anyone in this case. >> there you have it. that is the headline. i want to talk about this with a number of people at the top of the show. we have cnn's legal analyst and former prosecutor sunny hostin, prosecuted many a rape case, and also former falcons player jamaal anderson, and cnn's martin savidge. big news for folks in tallahass tallahassee. martin, let me begin with you because this percolated. this was a drip, drip slowly. a lot of questions over why this happened and why it took -- we're two days shy of a year to finding out wh
feet, that goes really high. how are these drones going to work? >> exactly. the law mandates you can use up to that level where you can enjoy the fulfillment of your land. so essentially, you know, if a drone flies over your summer barbecue, can you call the cops isn't the law is murky at this point. i would say possibly yes if that's interrupting the fulfillment of your land. at some point it's going to have to go low enough to land on someone's doorstep. that's huge. there's no law that will allow that at this point. >> amazon's reaction to these regulatory issues and potential blocks, what have they been s saying about that? >> amazon is saying they're hopeful the federal aviation administration will have laws in place by as early as 2015. the reality is i really don't think that will be the case. they're currently working on ways to integrate these small drones into the air space, but they're only working with drones that have a remote pilot. the ones that bezos are proposing are completely autonomous. for the safety reasons we just described, that is sort of a recipe for disaste
